Like its parent show, "Young Sheldon" has tapped into a vast reservoir of cameos, and the showrunners are now calling upon an iconic magician to return to the Cooper universe for “Young Sheldon’s” Season 5 finale. This time, however, he isn't playing the father of Amy Fowler (Mayim Bialik), and he has managed to bring his prolific partner along for the ride.
Illusionists and performers Penn and Teller will be tormenting young Sheldon in a unique set of roles. The colorful magicians will be representing a common fear of teenagers and young adults — skin conditions.
In the Season 5 finale episode, Penn and Teller will manifest when Sheldon becomes concerned with a growing pimple. Series co-creator Steve Molaro recalled, "Once Penn agreed to do it, we circled around to say, 'How would you guys feel about doing it together, as Acne and Pus?' They were very into it and just a delight to work with from beginning to end."
